A RECORD ATTENDANCE of 50,141 has turned out for today’s Ladies All-Ireland football final between Dublin and Cork at Croke Park.

It marks a trend of bigger crowds with every passing year at the event.

Last year, 46,286 spectators watched Dublin beat Mayo 4-11 to 0-11.

That figure had also been a significant increase of almost 12,000 compared with the 2016 clash involving Cork and Dublin, with 34,445 witnessing the Rebelettes claim a thrilling one-point victory.

Today’s figure is also close to double the 27,374 fans who watched Cork edge Dublin in the 2014 decider.
